Abstract

This paper describes the apparatus and techniques used for the study of the behavior of porous materials when impulsively loaded. Observations are made of the displacement-time history of steel plates, which have been accelerated by means of explosives, as they are retarded by specimens of wood and other porous materials. Preliminary dynamic stress-strain data, and some observations of compression wave propagation in porous media are presented.
